First of all, for an instructional language audio, this one is very short. Not much can be gained from 45 minutes of instruction.
Having said that, a lot of information has been crammed into these 45 minutes. It exposes the listener to a lot of general, very basic vocabulary, which is well chosen for a beginner and not for the traveller. It's a selection of commonly used nouns, verbs, adjectives, question words, etc. This makes it good resource for kids who struggle with Afrikaans at school (who are unlikely to need directions how to get to the post office or order a beer).
There is one major flaw in all this: each word is introduced on it's own, then repeated in a half-phrase, then in a full sentence. As far as I'm concerned the half-phrase is totally superfluous and misleading, and often it is wrongly translated. Also, since word order is supposed to change depending on the sentence, the partial sentences are often grammatically incorrect and nonsensical.
Despite this, I use this book on a regular basis to try build my kids' vocabulary. Afrikaans language resources are scarce, and I've encountered a lot worse.
